Overview

Altoist Jackie McLean met with up his idol, tenor-saxophonist Dexter Gordon for a couple of club dates and the result is a pair of hard-swinging if somewhat loose albums; the accompanying set is The Source. The pair of saxophonists (along with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Alex Riel) give four pieces ("On the Trail" and three obscure originals) lengthy renditions with Dexter's "All Clean" being over 17 minutes long. The music falls short of being classic but is quite spirited and recommended to fans of both Dexter Gordon and Jackie McLean.
